Face and Hair Masque from Valley View Organic - Review

Hello, People!!

Hope you are all doing great. Have you ever been to an Orchard? If yes, how was your experience? If no, then you must be thinking about how it will look. Don't worry people, as I am going to take you all into the beautiful 12 acres certified organic fruit orchard and farm stay in a tiny and quiet village called Kangar which is hidden away on a remote hilltop in the lower Himalayan ranges in Northernmost Punjab named "Valley View - Organic Orchard and Farm stay LLP". I have received two products from them for review purpose and in this post, I am going to share my views on them.




About the Brand:

This brand is owned by Yatan Ahluwalia and Jojo who are India's leading Image Consultant, Stylist, and Makeup, Hair artist respectively. Some info about the orchard in their words: "We bought this property in late 2008 and moved here from the hustle and bustle of the city in 2011. We grow about 42 types of seasonal and exotic fruits, a variety of vegetables and assortment of herbs. We produce our own pulses and wheat, milk our resident cows and process our oil and spices. All natural and all certified organic. We generate our own solar power and divert the surplus to the grid to power more homes. We make our own bio gas, organic manures, and boosters with natural materials and ingredients found on our property. Our entire estate is environmentally friendly and we try to be as self-sustainable as possible." Isn't this amazing!!??

My Experience with this Hair Masque:

The masque comes in a paper pouch with ziplock. The packaging is quite basic and easily accessible. When not in use, we can simply zip lock the pouch. This masque is in the form of coarse powder and is in green color. It smells like the raw leaves and I didn't find the smell irritating. I kind of liked it. The tough task starts from the application. As it is in the coarse powder form, I found it very difficult to apply evenly onto the scalp. 











As per the directions, first I have applied the masque by mixing it with Patanjali's Amla oil. It requires more amount of oil for this masque than we normally use to massage our scalp. The mixture becomes quite thick even before applying. So I kept on adding the oil in between. I have applied on my scalp and entire hair and kept it for 30 minutes and washed my hair with shampoo and skipped the conditioner to check the results. I initially thought that this masque will make my hair rough and dry with tangles because of the tough time during application. But I was quite surprised to see my hair soft and tangle free even after skipping conditioner. My hair was smooth and manageable for the next two days. For the people with dry hair, I will suggest using this masque with curd. I didn't saw any changes in hair fall and dandruff and other claims as I am not using this as they said i.e, twice or thrice weekly.

Pros:
  • Organic and Natural
  • No added preservatives and chemicals
  • Simple and effective ingredients
  • For both men and women
  • Suitable for all hair types
Cons:
  • Time taking
  • Difficulty in application
  • Creates huge mess
Verdict: Not for busy or lazy people. Otherwise, you can try this without any doubts as this masque is suitable for all hair types.

My Experience with this Face and Body Masque: 







The packaging is same as the hair masque. A paper pouch with zip lock and all the information about the masque. This comes in a finely powdered form. I really like the earthy fragrance of the mask. Unlike the hair masque, this masque is very easy to apply as it is in powdered form. They have mentioned mixing the mask with warm water, But I always love to use milk, curd or rosewater as the mixing agent because of the added advantages. I have used this mask with milk and I must say, it amazing as it has removed the tan from my face in just two uses (as the tan is very light) and brightened my skin. I cannot say anything about the remaining claims made by them as I don't have any other skin problems**touchwood**. This mask cleans the skin and the pores deeply and gives a fine, smooth and even skin tone.

Pros:
  • Organic and Natural
  • No added preservatives and chemicals
  • Simple and effective ingredients
  • For both men and women
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Easy to apply
Cons: No cons for me

Verdict: I would recommend this mask for people with any skin problems as regular usage might solve all your problems.
